Just finished trying it (details in siggy). Pharmacist said MAYBE I had a problem with the dye used for the pill and not the actual medication. Don't know. I am going to VERY gradually start it again next week and see what happens.
I will tell you that after about 3 days on it, my overall lupus symptoms were improved greatly!

Hey there! I am currently on it and have had no luck with it...will be moving to a new treatment in 2 weeks. I hear it is usually a wonderful drug with low side effects, if you start it, I wish you the best :)
